Because they are one of only a few big registrars who provide non 800 numbers ( you cant dial 800s into the USA from outside the USA ) and thus can be reached by phone..
I won't deal with a "support tickets / emails only" registrar or hoster who is not in the same county as I am..
Got bitten with that in 98... never again..
I have some stuff with my own account on opensrs..and some with European registrars ( all my French stuff ..many more than I have with Godaddy are with European registrars, historic reasons to do with the afnic registry )..Godaddy have given the least grief over the time I've been on the net of any I have tried or even currently use, out of any of them..
I even thought once, a few years back, about paying up and becoming a registrar,( only for my own stuff ) then decided against it ..looks too complex for the number of domains that I now hold..and 50K is better working elsewhere..
